DescriptionThe ACM Multimedia Systems Conference (MMSys) provides a forum for researchers to present and share their latest research findings in multimedia systems. While research about specific aspects of multimedia systems are regularly published in the various proceedings and transactions of the networking, operating system, real-time system, and database communities, MMSys aims to cut across these domains in the context of multimedia data types. This provides a unique opportunity to view the intersections and theinter-play of the various approaches and solutions developed across these domains to deal with multimedia data types.

MMSys typically co-locates

  • Network and Operating Systems Support for Digital Audio and Video (NOSSDAV)
  • Mobile Video (Mo Vid) Workshop
  • Massively Multiuser Virtual Environments

DescriptionWorkshop on Multimedia Streaming in Infomation-Centric Networks (MuSIC)

According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index and to Sandvine Global Internet Phenomena Reports, multimedia, in particular video ro real-time entertainment, are the predominant sources of traffic on the current Internet and continue to grow. However, the Internet protocols and mechanisms have not at all been designed for the challenging real-time communication media like video and voice streaming and conferencing, such that "the Internet only just works", as Mark Handley put it. Intense research on Quality of Service (QoS) schemes and frameworks has been conducted over the past decades, not resulting in practical and widely accepted mechanisms in the IP networking world. Currently, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are the primary means to deliver massive amounts of real-time content, e.g., video streams, to clients in a satisfying manner.

DescriptionAs we continue to develop our ability to generate, process, and display video at increasingly higher quality, we confront the challenge of streaming the same video to the end user. Device heterogeneity in terms of size and processing capabilities combined with the lack of timing guarantees of packet switching networks is forcing the industry to adopt streaming solutions capable of dynamically adapting the video quality in response to resource variability in the end-to-end transport chain. For example, many vendors and providers are already trialing their own proprietary adaptive video streaming platforms while MPEG has recently ratified a standard, called Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), to facilitate widespread deployment of such technology. However, how to best adapt the video to ensure highest user quality of experience while consuming the minimum network resources poses many fundamental challenges, which is attracting the attention of researchers from both academia and industry. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers working on all aspects of adaptive video streaming with special emphasis on innovative concepts backed up by experimental evidence.

QCMan'14
DateMay 9, 2014
LocationKrakow, Poland
ContactChristian Timmerer, Filip De Turck, Steven Latré
E-Mail
DescriptionThe Second IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on Quality of Experience Centric Management (QCMan) will be held in conjunction with IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2014 in Krakow, Poland, from May 5-9, 2014. The workshop is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and supported by the Klagenfurt University and Ghent University-iMinds. The workshop is endorsed by the Technical Committee on Network Operations and Management (CNOM).

In recent years, the Internet has evolved from a pure packet forwarder to a provider of complex and high demanding services and applications (e. g., video, voice, on-line gaming, cloud applications). These services and applications are typically managed through a set of Quality of Services parameters (e. g. packet loss, delay, jitter). However, it is widely agreed that the management of these services and applications should be centered on their quality as perceived by the end user: the Quality of Experience (QoE). However, this QoE centric management is greatly challenged in today's Internet by (i) the stringent QoE requirements of the supported services and applications (e. g., timing constraints, loss intolerance) and users (e. g., unpredictability of user behaviour, request for high quality services), (ii) the plethora of service consumption possibilities (e. g. for video: live vs on-demand, managed vs over-the-top), (iii) the inherent complexity of services and applications which can be offered to users in several ways to reach the same QoE level and (iv) the difficulty in assessing the quality as perceived by the end user also due to insufficient insight in the psychological and sociological factors of the service and application consumption.

QCMan 2014 aims at providing an international forum for researchers addressing these challenges. QCMan2014 will combine original full paper presentations with a motivating keynote to thoroughly explore this challenging topic.

DescriptionThe 20th International Packet Video Workshop (PV 2013) is devoted to presenting technological advancements and innovations in video and multimedia transmission over packet networks, in particular wireless and Internet networks. The workshop provides a unique venue for people from the media coding and networking fields to meet, interact and exchange ideas. Its charter is to promote the research and development in both established and emerging areas of video streaming and multimedia networking. PV 2013 will be held in San Jose, CA USA on December 12 and 13th. As in previous years, the workshop will be a single-track event and welcomes paper submissions from both cutting-edge research, and business and consumer applications. PV 2013 will be immediately following the Picture Coding Symposium, which will be held also in San Jose, CA.

DescriptionQoMEX 2013 - 5th International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience

QoMEX is the flagship scientific event of the COST Action IC 1003 QUALINET. After San Diego (2009), Trondheim (2010), Mechelen (2011), and Yarra Valley (2012), QoMEX 2013 is being held in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Austria. With its modern facilities and pleasant surroundings, Klagenfurt provides an excellent venue for three days of interesting presentations, stimulating discussions, networking, and cooperation opportunities on recent research in quality of multimedia experience.

QoMEX provides a forum of researchers, practitioners, teachers, and engineers to share their datasets/databases in the area of Quality of Experience. This effort has been started in 2012 and is successfully continued in 2013. The dataset will be hosted as part of the COST Action IC 1003 QUALINET and in collaboration with the ACM Multimedia Systems dataset.
